NEWTON, Mass., May 20, 2019 – Cheetah Medical, a Boston-based leader in non-invasive fluid management, today announced it will offer educational sessions and preview the company’s new Virtual Trainer app at the 2019 National Teaching Institute (NTI) & Critical Care Exposition annual meeting, May 20-23 in Orlando, Fl.

“Sepsis is among the most common causes of death in the hospital setting,” said Teresa Jones RN, MSN, CCRN-K, Director of Critical Care at Cookeville Regional Med Center. “As clinicians, it is crucial to have the education and training to properly recognize and respond to sepsis and septic shock.”
